In brief: Homeopathy

Homeopathy may work through principles of nanopharmacology, activating the body's own powers of self-regulation and self-healing.
Materials science indicates homeopathic remedies may affect entire organisms through epitaxy: the transfer of information, not material, from the surface of one material (usually solid) to another material (usually liquid, like our bodies that are 70% water).

I will answer for acupuncture & will allow one of the homeopaths to also answer. A number of chemicals/neurotransmitters can be impacted by acupuncture: serotonin, norepinephrine, substance p, gaba, dopamine, b- endorphin, acth, dynorphins, leucine - enkephalin & methionine-enkephalin.
Acupuncture also blocks obstructions in blood flow, lymphatic drainage, nerve conduction and chi. Different for.
